Leveraging Collective Intelligence Through Software
Blackwell Ballroom

Utilizing modern, community-oriented collaboration tools and online social processes, universities are increasingly investing in internal and external large-scale innovation capability development. This effort is often in support of a strategic, organization-wide program, innovating both the university itself and its methods of working.

In this presentation, the speaker will outline a case-study from UC San Diego’s online innovation program and the ways in which the organization is executing its strategic plan by utilizing community software. Specifically, we will explore how creating a platform has helped UCSD activate its students, staff and faculty to leverage collective intelligence and distributed knowledge. In addition, the role of AI in automating innovation will also be explored, as well as general trends in how academia is expected to take advantage of online collaboration to build new partnerships with industry.

Speaker: Oana-Maria Pop, Hype Innovation

NSF Convergence Accelerator - A New Transition Model for Government
Blackwell Ballroom

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has recently launched the NSF Convergence Accelerator - a new organizational structure to accelerate the transition of use-inspired convergence research into practice in areas of national importance. Convergence research is a critical mechanism for solving many vexing research problems, especially those stemming from complex social and/or scientific challenges. As a funder of research and education across all fields of science and engineering and as a strategic partner in ensuring this new knowledge benefits society, NSF is uniquely positioned to pilot this accelerated approach to discovery and innovation. The guiding rationale of the NSF Convergence Accelerator is that to deliver progress on scientific and societal challenges, it is necessary to take an approach at the highest level of interdisciplinarity and to involve multiple kinds of partners and stakeholders, including researchers and the ultimate users of research products.

Dr. Maughan will provide greater detail during his breakout session on Thursday, September 19 from 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

Speaker: Douglas Maughan, NSF

Panel Discussion: The Power of Diversity and Inclusion in Academia and Industry
Blackwell Ballroom

Diversity and inclusion programs have been supported by universities and industry for years, with the primary goal of increasing representation among underrepresented communities. Studies have shown that diversity decreases employee turnover, makes an organization more attractive to prospective employees, increases creativity and innovation, improves an organization’s brand, and increases profits and overall job satisfaction. How have the definitions of diversity and inclusion changed over time? What are successful practices in fostering inclusive excellence in organizations? What organizations are the most successful and most progressive in implementing the “next-gen” of diversity and inclusion?  Our panelists, using their years of experience and knowledge of different institutions and industries, changing policies, and take-aways from their personal and professional roles, will address the shifting landscape of diversity and inclusion, including past successes and future directions.

Moderator: Morley Stone, Ohio State University
Speakers: James Moore, Ohio State University, Corine Burger, JP Morgan Chase, Jesse Tyson, National Black MBA Association, Susan Basso, Ohio State University, Angela Bretz, Nationwide

Breakout Sessions #2

Project: Contracting Issues - Students
Pfahl Hall 340

Many industry sponsored research projects include undergraduate and graduate students.  Student participation can add complexity to the contracting process since specific budget items (such as tuition) and other clauses (such as confidentiality) may require additional explanations and review by both parties. This session will cover these matters and others of interest to the audience.

Speaker: Paul Lowe, Kansas State University

Communication, Empathy and Ensemble: Theatre Tools for Improving the Workplace
Pfahl Hall 240

Through the lens of theatrical rehearsal-room techniques, we will build a sense of ensemble and empathy while exploring what it means to be a student of human behavior and to engage in active, fully connected listening and responding.  We will also explore various opportunities to deepen awareness, to communicate with clarity and compassion and to cultivate the ability to adjust, improvise and adapt based on the truth of the moment. We will also share our notions of how these skills may be transferable to the workplace. And there will be some Shakespeare as well.

Speaker: Kevin McClatchy, Ohio State University

The Hidden Downside of Startups and Proposed Corrective Measures
Pfahl Hall 140

Increasing industry-funded research on campus and launching startups are both hip priorities for research universities. These two types of investments can bring substantial benefit to universities, industry and society. However, with the intensifying university emphasis on startups, we are at the leading edge of a wave of costly conflicts and strained long-term relationships between universities and existing industry research sponsors. Creating appropriate process safeguards is necessary to allow these two crucial endeavors to continue with minimal chance of conflict.  The basis of conflict, some examples of recent problems, and proposed preventive measures will be presented and discussed.

Moderator: Ed Krause, Ford
Speakers: Austin Kozman, Pepsico, Gretchen Baier, Dow, Jenny Moe, P&G

Project: Industry Employees as Professors of Practice
Pfahl Hall 202

Professor of Practice positions allow industry professionals an opportunity to share their expertise in the classroom or in an academic research lab. This concept session will explore best practices for universities when considering professor of practice programs and seek input from industry representatives on their perceptions of such programs.

Speaker: Geanie Umberger, Purdue University

Accessing Talent Through Innovative Programs: Capstones
Pfahl Hall 330

Capstone Programs are a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to engage with industry and non-profit organizations to explore a myriad of real-world, hands-on experiences.  The relationship allows the students to apply their knowledge to solve a problem within a diverse team and to work with professionals within their field of study, while the company gains new and fresh perspectives to problem-solving, while getting a firsthand look at those who could be future employees.  This panel discussion will offer the opportunity to hear both the company and a university perspective of this type of program and to understand what works well and what could use some improvement, as well as insight from the UIDP Capstone Project team.

Moderator: Amy Dudley, Ohio State University
Speakers: Carolyn Stephens, UC Irvine & Shubho Bhattacharya, Honda

Match Game: Connecting Academia, Innovators, and Industry
Pfahl Hall 302

Industry-university research partnerships can help companies focus on. their core R&D capabilities or on more immediate product development needs. When research needs to extend into areas that are new to the company, or outside of existing relationships with academic institutions, it can be a challenge to find the right partners. Similarly, academic-based startups can run into significant challenges finding the right business leadership to establish and grow a company. Panelists will discuss the design considerations and expected outcomes of online portals offering expertise matching, equipment inventories, research services, and patents to support established industry and emerging entrepreneurs. The tools that will be discussed include CSU's Innovation Portal, the Ohio Innovation Exchange (OIEx), and University of Kentucky's Executives on Roster (XOR).

Moderator: Ben Ward, Cleveland State University
Speakers: Jack Kraszewski, Cleveland State University, Jeff Agnoli, The Ohio State University, and Mariam Gorjian, University of Kentucky
